How do you choose your perfect mattress?

If you don't sleep on your own mattress for a night, you will soon realize whether you find the mattress too hard or too soft. Everyone has a personal preference when it comes to the comfort of a mattress. It is also about getting the right support to prevent or remedy shoulder and back problems. This also has to do with the position you sleep in. In short, plenty to take into account. Therefore In this article we will tell you how to choose the perfect hardness!

In short, what you should pay attention to for the ideal mattress hardness

  • Your weight and height influence the level of support that the mattress must provide to ensure good posture and pressure distribution while sleeping. In general, people with a lighter weight can benefit from a softer mattress, while people with a heavier weight usually benefit from a firmer mattress.
  • Your preferred sleeping position may require a certain level of support and pressure distribution. Later in this article we will go into more detail about which sleeping position corresponds to a certain firmness.

Side sleeper: hard or soft mattress?

For side sleepers, a mattress with a medium to soft firmness is often best suited. Side sleepers need more pressure relief to properly support the hips and shoulders. A soft mattress helps maintain proper spinal alignment and avoids pressure points on these sensitive areas. It ensures that the body weight is evenly distributed.

Back sleeper: hard or soft mattress?

For back sleepers, a mattress with a medium to firm firmness is usually best suited. The mattress should provide sufficient support to the lower back and maintain the natural curvature of the spine. A mattress that is too soft can cause the back to sag, while a mattress that is too firm can create pressure points. A medium firmness mattress generally offers the right balance of comfort and support. Are you unsure between a hard or soft mattress for back problems? Then it is best to follow this advice.

Stomach sleeper: hard or soft mattress?

Stomach sleepers usually benefit more from a mattress with a firm firmness. A hard mattress helps to prevent the back from sagging too much, keeping the spine in a neutral position. A mattress that is too soft can cause the back to bend excessively, which can lead to back problems. However, it is important to mention that sleeping on the stomach is not the most ideal sleeping position as it can put extra pressure on the neck and back. It is recommended to try switching to side or back sleeping for a better sleeping position.
